  1. Available right now at srcvinyl. Their inventory shows 6.
  2. This Ebay seller has lots of those tough to find Europe releases (like Goldie, etc): and no, I don't know if it is a referral link! http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_sop=10&_ssn=earcandymusic2&hash=item2cbe00dc74%3Ag%3ARH8AAOSwtZJY~GcH&item=192166288500&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xrsd.TRS0&_nkw=rsd&_sacat=0 Edit: I'm sorry, I guess there are not that many listings, but he had 2 of the 5 I wanted from Europe (FSOL and Penguin Cafe Orchestra!).
  3. Thanks for posting the amoeba link. I guess nothing I wanted was available, I was searching for them individually and none of them are in the database there yet.
  4. Remember to try the coupon 'clippers10' at Amoeba. It might work for 10% off.
  5. I haven't checked today but Dodax's shipping from Amazon.fr is usually less than from Amazon.de. Link to Dodax - amazon.fr: https://www.amazon.fr/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_fr_FR=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&url=me%3DA38CXL9SBKKJ7Z&field-keywords=rsd
  6. I ordered from the Sweden shop last year. All 6 items were common, but Europe-only RSD releases. I ordered on Sunday. On Monday I received a confirmation email for 5 of the 6 items. One item was not available. They had already charged my credit card for the full order. I received the refund on the one item in about a week, but the shipping price was not refunded for this item. The order arrived within 2 weeks, but only 4 of the 5 items were in the package. At this point the time difference and the language barrier came into play as I tried to email them to sort out the problem. I eventually received a refund for the missing item, but it took a good month (and, again, I did not receive a refund for the shipping I had paid). The impression I had was that they were (1) friendly but (2) disorganized. I am going to wait and see if other dealers (Townsend / Norman perhaps) have the things I need this year.
  7. I am holding two Jason Isbell albums in my hand right now at the store. Does anyone still need them? ========= Ok Jasons are spoken for.
  8. Pineapple Express has been up and down on Ebay all morning for $35 or so, which is regular priced.
  9. Another thing about RSD Ebay sales: there are some vigilante / activist buyers out there who deliberately f--- with the flippers. These guys have no intention of really buying the overpriced title. They register with new names to Ebay and commit to buy expensive pre-order items, but then they do not pay. The seller has to wait for 48 hours before filing his non-paying complaint, and he has to wait two more days before he can cancel the order and re-list. In the meantime, RSD has come and gone and the prices have dropped sharply. Do this enough times and the flipping will stop ...
  10. Here's another store, We Got The Beats in Florida. They posted their inventory and pricing along with how many of each they ordered, and how many they received: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1g4Dl7V5obq9jEiZu8tjkPjvfnzBjWtiPnJms5QDyvCw/edit#gid=0
  11. BTW, my sense is that Ebay listings are way down this year, by at least 1/3 or so. Pre-sales were way down as well. Every year I am around the computer this morning at exactly the same time trying to decide whether to go out shopping and which store to hit first. Definitely fewer listings on EBay so far than years past.
  12. This is a link to a priced UK list from Piccadilly Records (all prices in GBP). I saw some interesting things (for instance, the Bruce Springsteen is less expensive than the Iggy Pop, and it is much less expensive than the price in the USA). https://www.piccadillyrecords.com/RSD_2017_Product_List_PICCADILLY_RECORDS.pdf
  13. I subscribe to a lot of record store instagram feeds. Every store is putting up photographs of their setups for RSD. After looking at maybe 300 copies of, say, Motorhead, it just doesn't seem that record is hard-to-find to me any more. None of it does. I'm going to visit a couple of my local stores this afternoon. after the stores have emptied out. As for the early online sales tomorrow of unsold stock, every RSD I see the panic in the eyes of shopowners about 4PM in the afternoon when the good titles and the good stuff is gone and they're staring at 500+ unsold RSD titles in their bins and they realize that that unsold stock represents all their potential profits for the day. The sheer numbers of releases is overwhelming for store owners. Especially because you really don't have any idea what kind of a fill you can expect from your orders, and since you can't return the unsold stock. The smart ones are already planning their online / EBay strategies going forward for the unsold items.
  14. Amazon France seems to have stock in some good titles at reasonable prices. I ordered The Cars, Bruce Springsteen, U2 Picture Disc and the Mew Frengers.
  15. Don't forget to check Amazon.com. Several of the Europe releases I was worried about (Magazine, Hawklords, others) are available for regular pre-orders with shipping tomorrow.
  16. I don't know what that means. I took down the link. OK? OK.
  17. Jeez, I saw the listing, I copied the link to share it. I don't pay attention to the affiliation involved. Just trying to help ... Anyway, if you go to Ebay in Italy, and search, there is a dealer with the Coheed & Cambria RSD album for $35 plus $25 shipping to the USA. EOM.
  18. . (Post and linked removed because someone didn't like it).
  19. Amoeba has a short video of their Record Store Day process up on Facebook. I don't know if you have to be on Facebook to see it or not. www.facebook.com/amoeba/videos/10155426280098816/ Amoeba has also confirmed they will post their unsold items on the website beginning at 5:00AM PST Sunday, April 23.
  20. Kickstarter for LP Capsules Wall Displays I saw this new Kickstarter campaign today. It is not me and I have nothing to do with it.
  21. I like the bonus EP that Caldo Verde will send along when they send the LP.
